by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer: The Consolations of Infinity…
Excerpted from The Power of Intention, pages 120-121.
We all live on a stage where many infinities gather.
Just take a look outside tonight and contemplate the infinity of space. There are stars so distant from you that they’re measured in the distance that light travels in an Earthly year. Beyond those stars that you can see are endless galaxies that stretch out into something we call eternity.
Indeed, the space that you occupy is infinite. Its vastness is too huge for us to see. We’re in an infinite, never-ending, never-beginning universe.
Now pay close attention to this next sentence. If life is infinite, then this is not life.
Read that again and consider that life truly is infinite. We can see this in everything that we scrupulously observe.
Therefore, we must conclude that life, in terms of our body and all of its achievements and possessions, which without exception begins and ends in dust, isn’t life itself.
Grasping life’s true essence could radically change your life for the better. This is an enormous inner shift that eliminates fear of death (how can you fear something that can’t exist?) and connects you permanently to the infinite Source of Creation that intends everything from the world of infinite Spirit, into a finite world.
Learn to be comfortable with the concept of infinity, and see yourself as an infinite being.
While we’re in this finite world of beginnings and endings, the power of intention maintains its infinite nature because it’s eternal.
If life is infinite, then this is not life.
— DR. WAYNE DYER
Anything you experience as other than eternal is simply not life. It’s an illusion created by our ego, which strives to maintain a separate address and identity from its infinite Source.
This shift toward seeing yourself as an infinite spiritual being having a human experience, rather than the reverse—that is, a human being having an occasional spiritual experience—is loaded with fear for most people.
I urge you to look at those fears and face them directly right now; the result will be a permanent connection to the abundance and receptivity of the universal Source that intends all of Creation into temporary form.
